USA Today Preseason Coaches Poll Released: Where Maryland's Opponents Stack Up

Mitch Stringer-US PRESSWIRE

Maryland faces two top-15 opponents this season.

The USA Today Preseason Coaches Poll has been released, and unsurprisingly Maryland is without a single vote. However, multiple Terrapin opponents, both present and future, make their appearances around the poll, so let's take a look at how it turned out.

The B1G is second among conferences with five teams represented (#2 Ohio State, #17 Michigan, #18 Nebraska, #22 Northwestern and #23 Wisconsin), while the ACC has just two (#8 Clemson and #12 Florida State). Maryland opponent Virginia Tech also received 65 votes, good for 30th on the list.

For Maryland, it's what we thought - two ranked opponents (both highly so) with one just out of the top 25 and no votes for the Terps themselves.

You can find the results of the poll here.
